This Kiva borrower is a 58-year-old married man and the father of two school-aged children. He is from Lebanon. He has worked in a local food company since 2002. He cooperates with his wife who owns an accessories shop to satisfy the family needs.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay for his children's education. In that way, he will avoid facing financial problems with the school management and permit his children to pursue their education peacefully.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.). Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
